Abstract : We propose a passive haptic feedback system that can provide the user with grounded forces in a 3D manipulation space. A vi-sual/haptic interaction is used to control forces returned by the system, which is composed of cables and a braking system. An experiment, consisting of two sessions of stickiness comparison tasks, is conducted to evaluate the device. The first session is done with the proposed haptic feedback, the second is purely visual, without haptic cues. We propose indicators for task performance and we measure the forces fed back by the device during the experiment. Results show that the device provides the users with actual forces that are consistent with simulated physical properties, and that it enhances user performance compared to the purely visual situation. Finally, the system is installed on a Responsive Workbench on which informal tests show that it provides the users with haptic sensations.
